27 Feb Blank, Blanker, Blankest
I’m sitting here staring at a blank computer screen unable to think of anything to write about. My face is illuminated by light from the screen. There is just nothing there. Wait a moment. I have an idea. According to the Book of Revelation in heaven there is a record of my sins. But, according to the promise in John 5 about my not being judged because of Jesus’ mercy, my sins are blotted out. Blots are messy and if John understood the delete key on a computer I’m sure he would have said deleted instead of blotted. Therefore, I am going to assume my page is like my blank computer screen reflecting only light. I like that idea. Considering the challenge of filling a page with text can be quite daunting, I have never been happy with a blank screen, but now I am. The blanker the better. Hmm. If something is blank can it be blanker or blankest? The thing is blank is sufficient. I would be being piggy if I wanted blanker.
One of my earliest memory verses as a child was I John 1:9. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” One thing is for sure I am a good confessor. I’m the best. As soon as I realize something is wrong I confess. It isn’t because I think I will be thrown out if I don’t get right to it. No. A good parent doesn’t throw a child out of the family every time they do something wrong. No, I am quick to confess because I don’t want to cause Jesus any grief because of me. Love makes us want to please our lover.
